Pegasus Journal January 1956.
It is with deep regret that we record the death of L/Cpl Brian Allsopp following a parachuting accident on 19th August, 1955. L/Cpl. Allsopp joined the Platoon in August, 1954; during the months following he proved himself a popular member of the Platoon. His sense of humour and jovial spirit were part of everyday life in the Company. Those of us who worked with him learnt to appreciate his worth. When we learned of his death we felt we had lost a true friend, and to his bereaved mother goes our deepest sympathy.
